The four distinct language and cultural regions are certainly among Switzerland’s best-known characteristics. The GoldenPass Panoramic links the German- and French-speaking regions and allows insights into Switzerland’s diverse cultural heritage – piece by piece.
From Zweisimmen, the premium panoramic train starts out towards Montreux. It feels almost as if the passing scenery had been created specifically for this panoramic journey – one lovely view follows the other: Cows grazing on lush, green pastures, traditional wooden chalet-style houses nestling in the gentle hills, all of it against the backdrop of magnificent Alpine peaks. And the best is saved for last: Shortly before Montreux, a fantastic view over glistening Lake Geneva opens up to the passengers. The train leisurely winds its way down the hill and puts guests in the perfect mood for the Geneva region and its Mediterranean flair. The GoldenPass Panoramic is part of the scenic GoldenPass Line and therefore also belongs to the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland.
